FOOD IN FOCUS "We bring in particular cookies from other countries that our customers can't find throughout the year," he adds, such as Italian amaretti and an extended selection of Walkers Shortbread. "These types of cookies give people a connection to their families—and even more so during the holi- days." Seibert says Bahlsen, Biscoff and Walkers cookies are the biggest year-round sellers at Jungle Jim's. Joe Slavic is the specialty food buyer for Foods of All Nations in Charlottesville, Va., which stocks a cookie section that runs 50 feet long. "While we do bring in seasonal cookies, we find all of the varieties we carry sell well year-round," Slavic says, echoing Seibert's callouts for top-selling brands: Bahlsen, Biscoff and Walkers. When taking a look at cookies from Summer Fancy Food Show Booth 1614 around the world, it's easy to see many have grown from foreign tastes to familiar favorites in America, while many others are still new to the American palate but may be poised to become the next biscotti. Holiday Favorites Around the Year Shortbread, biscotti and ginger cookies may never lose their allure in the American mar- ketplace. They are among long-standing favorites, particularly around the holidays when family traditions are front-of-mind. These internationally inspired cookies have one key factor in common: shoppers can find them still made with the high-quality ingredients in the traditions of the countries where they evolved. When updated with Lark Fine Foods takes a traditional butter cookie and dresses it up with flavors like Whole Grain Espresso Chip, Burnt Sugar & Fennel, and the 2011 sofi™ Silver Finalist for Outstanding Cookie, Salted Rosemary Shortbread.
